Expand Your Desktop Workspace With Dexpot – Cool Virtual Desktop Software [Windows]

I was talking to one of my friends, who is an avid Linux user. He told me that one of the Linux features he simply can’t do without is “virtual desktops”. I can now tell my friend that such a thing does exist in the Windows world – maybe not as a native feature, but in the form of the powerful Dexpot application. In fact, the app bills itself as “the tool Windows lacks”.

Form Healthy Habits & Get Rid of Bad Ones With Success Log & Fail Log [Android 2.1+]

Developing good habits and getting rid of bad ones can be tricky. Some people like to track their failures and try to see what causes them to slip up, such as “why did I have to binge last night?” Others like to decide on positive habits and track those, to develop a winning mindset and focus on the positive. Today we’ll be looking at two applications, one for each approach.

How to Read Great Long-Form Articles on Your Kindle With Delivereads

I love my Kindle. Being able to read an endless variety of books on one slim device with a paper-like display makes me feel like I’m actually living in the future. But sometimes, a book isn’t what I need. Sometimes I just want to read a lengthy, well-written magazine article that would make me feel smarter or better informed.

Two Chrome Browser Add-ons For A Better YouTube Viewing Experience

Few things online can be as fun as YouTube. I can lose myself for hours watching videos. But the basic YouTube experience could use some improvement. Wouldn’t it be nice if videos could buffer as soon as a tab opened, and did so at exactly the quality I liked? And wouldn’t it be refreshing if YouTube was a tad less cluttered?

NoLED – Shows Notifications Even If Your Device Has No LED [Android 2.1+]

Some Android devices don’t have dedicated notification LEDs. So if you leave the device for a few moments and want to see if anyone tried to contact you while you were away, you need to unlock it and check Android’s notifications. If you do that several times every day, it can become a bit of a hassle. But if you use NoLED, you may not have to.

RoboForm Desktop – Keep Your Passwords Safe & Secure

If you use a different password for every website, how will you ever be able to remember them all? You won’t, of course, and that’s where a password manager comes in, where you only need to remember one “master password”, protecting all other unique passwords. If you’ve never used one before and the concept seems a bit intimidating, it’s very possible RoboForm is what you’ve been waiting for all along.

Tasker For Android: A Mobile App That Caters to Your Every Whim

When it comes to device automation, there’s just one 900-lb gorilla in the Android space, and that’s Tasker. True, Llama is an awesome free automation app, but it doesn’t aim for Tasker’s full power. Tasker is a paid app (it costs UK £3.99), so we’ve never really covered it in detail. Now the time has come to share with you one of the absolute best Android apps on the Market.

How To Create Cool Time-Lapse Videos With ChronoLapse

Have you ever watched a speed-drawing video on YouTube? You know the ones – they often feature some great Photoshop artist showing off their skill by creating a beautiful piece of art right in front of your eyes. A large part of what makes them so impressive is how fast everything happens. The video is shown in fast-forward, so that every second of video is actually several seconds (or even a minute) of real time.

Diagramly – A Handy Tool For Creating Quick Flowcharts

In the age of infographics, flowcharts are a great tool for getting your point across without using too many words. If you routinely create flowcharts as part of your work, you may already be using a full-featured product such as Microsoft Visio. But if flowcharts aren’t yet a big part of your process, you may want to give Diagramly a look. The best thing about Diagramly is how accessible it is.

Solarized – A Crisp, Scientifically-Based Color Scheme For Your Apps

If you spend your days in front of a computer monitor, color can be an important tool in the fight against fatigue and eye strain. Just about every text editor supports syntax coloring, and many editors come with an array of color schemes for you to choose from. There are virtually thousands of other schemes available online, and yet I’ve never seen one that’s quite like Solarized.
